OBJECTIVE Few studies report long-term follow-up of renal cancer treated by radiofrequency ablation (RFA), thus limiting the comparison of this modality to well-established long-term follow-up series of surgically resected renal masses. Herein, we report long-term oncologic outcomes of renal cancer treated with RFA in a single institution. METHODS AND(More)
Spontaneous coronary artery dissection (SCAD) is a rare and potentially deadly disease without a clear and universal treatment. Medical as well as mechanical interventions, including percutaneous and coronary bypass surgery, have been used. We present two dissimilar cases of SCAD that required markedly different treatments reflecting the variety in clinical(More)
"Broken heart" syndrome is a rare phenomenon characterized by transient ballooning of the left ventricle and chronic heart failure, usually presenting in postmenopausal women. It is formally known as acute stress-induced cardiomyopathy and, although described in the cardiology literature, it has not been previously described in plastic surgery patients. It(More)
The immense advancement of our understanding of disease processes has not been a uniform progression related to the passage of time. Advances have been made in "lurches" and "catches" since the advent of the written word. There has been a remarkable interdependency between such advances in medicine and advances in mathematics that has proved beneficial to(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Radiofrequency ablation (RFA) is an effective technique for the treatment of patients with small renal tumors, although it is often limited to tumors at least 2 cm from the renal pelvis or ureter. Retrograde pyeloperfusion (PPF) of the pelvis with cold saline during RFA may protect the pelvis and ureter. We designed a mathematical and(More)
